E3 2019 thoughts

So, this time there wont be a podcast going over E3. I’m rather sad but it’s alright 🙂 so here I am writing this out to you guys. I’m going to be honest. This year, E3 was a roller coaster of emotions. I’ll do my best to keep it in order, but I think I’m going to start with the things I’m excited for and then go from there if that’s alright. I also apologize for this post being a week late! I didn’t mean to be lazy and forget to finish writing this haha.

So, I’m going to start off by saying two words. Keanu Reeves. If you’ve been paying attention you can see why this is number one. This god like man is going to be in Cyberpunk 2077. I’ve been keeping a close eye on this game. and let’s face it. CD Projekt Red is an amazing company. The fact they legit love their fans and care about what they want. Adding some thank you notes in their games is another reason why I support these guys!!! They always seem to deliver what they promise and I can’t wait to get this game and play it.

I’m going to sneak Halo Infinite in this list too. If you know me, you know that I love this series. Now I’ll be honest, they lost me a little with 5, but I think they’re going to win me back with this one. It’s like a legit Halo game, where you are the big MC and It’s just great 😀 I’m going to throw Ghostwire:Tokyo into this as well. The story seems rather unique and I can’t wait to see more about this!!! Of course I also loved Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. Ghost vs Ghost?! HELL YEAH!!!!!

Of course you have Sega getting back out there with some Panzer Dragoon and Phantasy Star Online 2. I just hope it makes it over here because I rather enjoy Panzer, and Phantasy Star Online has been out in Japan for quite a long time. You also have Dauntless from Phoenix Labs coming to Switch and a new Yooka-Laylee. But this begs the question, will we see an actual Banjo-Kazooie game? Who knows at this point. The only thing I have to give me even a sliver of hope is that he’s in Super Smash now.

Namco is also throwing some nice games into the ring. Code Vein is something I’ve been waiting for, for quite a few years, and I’m excited to see some more things about it. Man of Medan is also a very interesting game, and that it’s part of an Anthology? Can’t wait!! I can’t forget to talk about Dragonball Z: Kakarot. I mean we get to see what happened during the whol DBZ series and I just can’t wait to get some questions answered 😀

So, as expected, we got to see a look into a lot of the titles we see almost yearly. They showed off the new COD: MW. I will say I was excited to see a lot of familiar faces, and that their season pass would be free, and so forth. You also got to see more information about Ghost Recon. I love the idea of Ghost vs Ghost, I think it’s neat. But I’m concerned it’s going to be like the other games where it’s rinse and repeat these quests all over again in new areas, Far Cry style if you will.

At the time of this article as well, there was more information released about Sword and Shield. This is a bittersweet thing for me. There was a statement made where not every single Pokemon would be in the game. Though I was sad to hear this, I understand their decision to a point. But let’s be honest here. Something seems off about this and I’m not sure how to truly feel about this. I mean their 3D graphics are still almost 3DS quality so with the power of the Switch, I find it a little hard to believe their thought process but maybe they’ll retract. Who knows.

So, I’m going to be bias with my worst part of E3 list. The PC part was a huge disappointment to me. For those who don’t know, and I’m sure I’ll get some form of shit from this, I’m not an Epic Games fan. Without going into a lot of details, I was upset to see a few games I was looking forward to going Epic Exclusive. Shenmue 3 was the big one. As of this article, they have stated they are now releasing on Steam, but I wont hold my breath on this. So we’ll have to see. Some of the other exclusives were already known. Now, I’m not saying I’m not going to play these games. Eventually I will. But I don’t really care if you enjoy Epic. We’re all adults here, and can make their own choices 🙂

All in all, it was a solid 50/50 this year. There were a lot of things I was excited to hear, but at the same time there are other games I was anxious to see about and there was nothing about them. So what do you guys think of E3? Did you love anything you say? Did something upset you? Let me know in the comments below 😀
